I had a long day today. Stressful and emotional. I stopped off for a beer by myself at a good bar by my apartment. It's worth the extra few blocks because it's awesome. Talking about Journey Atari games got me engrossed with some of the regulars, and as some country music played, I got excited to go home and listen to "Bustin' Out" on vinyl by Pure Prarie League. I bought this record years ago only because "Amy" is on it, but it is chocked full of awesome southern rock. And I bought it for $0.49. Yes. Less than fifty cents.
I just read that paragraph and saw that I was excited to go home. Wow. Officially a dork.
Kim Coulter wrote her name in some permanent marker across the front of the cover of the LP. Don't you ever want to know who these people are? I imagine tons of people have sold this record for a host of reasons, but the way I operate is I need to know who owned THIS VERY COPY.
I'm a weird fan of rock music. The kind that wants to know who listened to this album and where. And which drugs were consumed. And did Kim have any feelings about having to part with this record, or was it Kim's daughter who sold it? And is Kim dead? Did Kim ever really dig this record? I mean, she cared enough to write her name on it . . .
Anyone else think at along these lines, or am I totally a nut. I am too nuts to be alone right now, right? Maybe I should just belly up to the bar again and stop being a nut.
